Editorial | Revisiting the year 2008 & Kum 2009 etlawhna

Mangkam: I am in a dilemma, what to call the past year 2008. Whatever it may be, things keep on changing, winds blows and often changed its directions. The year 2008 have a rugged and smooth records in the Zou society in Delhi and NCR.

We all know what 2008 had impact on you and me, and also on our society. For some, it may be the year of success, changes or may be it is a heart broken year for others. Here, what I wanted to emphasize is that, let us all look into a new world, let us all shun  our differences and try to follow the same tune of the society chorus.

Zokam: I zaat, i nam hoitah a apei thei na ding in nang tuomi be-le-phung chite a um lou ngai, na sanggampa, ka pupa, ka innkuonte chia dihlou thei na sasa ki bawnghua jui tei tei, a dihlou ahi chi thei na sasa a ki pawng gup chite a um lou ding ahi.

I nam hoina ding ahi leh eima mimal ki-chapousahna (ego) pen paimang poimaw leh kul hi. Kum 2008 sung in kichapousahna ngen a dim i tam zieh in sil a suolou ding tampi suodoh um hi. A naupang lam hitahen aw, a upalam hitaleh, a ki bawng-eh bah chiet akitam man in i nam sungah lungvai huoi leh luosuo huoi zen in kum i zang tung uhi.

Society sunga mimal ki theisiemlouna umte lahsah lou ham i sawm lou ua ahileh lamkai a na pang nin na post adih lou in na zang kha jel ding hi. Mimal kithei siemlouna pen pawlpi sunga i chillum toh val ngai hi.

Pawlpi sung khat poupou ah ka thu, ka la peihen na chi a ahileh na ki innte sah poimaw hi. A gal a apat mi sep leh bawl na soisel laisie a gamla deu deu nahi khinkhien hi. Na sem in, silhoi bawl in, innte pan in malou bang pua lechin mipi’n na thu jui duom duom mai ding ahi.

Ka sanggampa, ka pupa ahizieh ahiei a panla kahileh vang, a mawhna, hui in tangvai asemmang bang bep ka hi ding hi. Thu adihlou ahita i chi leh zong sumkuong chieng kei lou a i bawl khiel umte admit theijel pen guoljawna leh kituona bul ahi chi tu kum 2009 sunga i thupi ding uh hita hen.

What a Shameful Act it was!!

-Khakhai Zou,
President, Zou Youth Organization,  Delhi Branch.

The members of ZCF, Delhi were, as usual, merrily celebrating and having worship service on New Year’s Day (i.e. on 1st January, 2009) at Community Hall, Netaji Nagar, and New Delhi.  When the morning service and the games and sports were over and while every one was waiting to have their share of New Year Feast, some misguided youth of the Zou community started distributing a Fake Issue of Zokuawmthawn issued by the no-longer existing Zo Organization Delhi.

The reasons why I am saying Fake Issue of Zokuawmthawn is simple. Any person who is of ordinary prudence can understand it without any explanation. However, having said so, I feel it my duty to briefly clarify it as follow:

Zokuomthawn is a periodical journal being published by the Zou Sangnaupang Pawlpi, Delhi Branch for the last many years. The present Editorial Board of the Zokuomthawn Journal are Mr. Ginshanglian Samte, Mr. Hausienmuan Munluo, Mr. T. Zamlunmang Zou and Mr. Samuel Samte. As such, any issue of the journal published by any person other than the incumbent Editorial Board or without their knowledge and consent is obviously nothing else but a Fake. Mr. Hausienmuan is currently on a visit to home State. None of these four Editorial Board members are in any way associated with the issue of the Journal that was circulated on New Year’s Day. They have neither authorized anyone to bring out any issue of the journal on their behalf. Therefore, the issue of the journal in question which bears the names of Tv. Douminlien as Chief Editor and Tv. Vincent Letminthang as News Editor, circulated on New Year Day was nothing else but a Fake Journal. It is very unfortunate to learn yet again that this was obviously done on the advice and support of Mr. Philip Thanlianmang, the self-imposed Chairman of the no-longer existing Zo Organization Delhi. For further details in this regard, please visit the website zoworkshop/, where you will find how, when and why the hither to ZOD no longer exist and instead, Zou Youth Organization, Delhi Branch have since been established to look after the welfare and affairs of the Zou community living in Delhi and its surrounding areas.

Now, an instance of this kind is like a Cancer simply because it will breed misunderstanding and hatred between us instead of promoting unity and brotherhood. Therefore, it needs no emphasis that if a person loves his or herself and wishes unity and brotherhood amongst his or her community, one should refrain from indulging in such shameful and destructive act at all times. Further, such an act is not only highly inappropriate but also reflects utter disrespect to the authority of one’s own community’s parent organizations such as the UZO, ZYO or ZSP. The various articles of the Fake issue of the journal also contains information that is tantamount to, among others, offences relating to documents and public tranquility such as forgery and making false document, intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of peace, statements creating or promoting enmity, hatred or will-will between classes, criminal conspiracy, unlawful assembly with intent to intimidate a target individual or group etc. etc.   For instance, in an article titled “Ton (Feast of Boasting)/ZO TON” by MK, an attempt appears to be made that a ZO TON can be organize by any person any time either to celebrate his great success or happiness etc. Surely, any person can celebrate his or her success or happiness any time and invite any person or persons. But, there is a difference between a TON organize by an individual and a TON organize by an Organization. If I am not mistaken, a TON organize by an individual is known by the name of the person who organize it and it cannot be called ZO TON as it was tried to be made out in the article. Accordingly, it would be most appropriate and legal if a ZO TON is organize only by the apex organization i.e. by the UZO. However, this does not mean that the ZYO or ZSP cannot organize a ZOU TON but an individual cannot do so. Therefore, let us not misinform or misguide our youth and younger generations. Offences of this kind are punishable under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code with imprisonment ranging from two years or more or with fine or both. By saying this, I do not mean to suggest in anyway that any person or I intend to take up the issue before any court of law.

However, in my capacity as the current President of the Zou Youth Organization, Delhi Branch, I feel it duty bound to try and promote unity, brotherhood and understanding among us. I am, therefore, making a very fervent and humble request to one and all – please desist from indulging in similar acts again in future. My appeal include to all those who have been nominated as ZOD Cabinet Members to resign from their respective nominations, because the ZOD no longer exist. This is necessary in the interest of promoting unity, brotherhood and understanding among us not only in times of both happiness and sorrow but at all times. Let us all say enough is enough, forgive and forget the past and no longer try to divide ourselves neither on religious or clan basis nor on any other ground. Also, let us all refrain from spreading half-truth stories on the net in future.
Long Live UZO, ZYO and ZSP.
